Clifty Creek Natural Area

Beautiful, wild Clifty Hollow has been a revered fixture in these parts since well before I was a boy.  I can tell stories!  Ask me some time….

It is near Rock Eddy Bluff.  In fact,  the hollow can easily be seen from either Rock Eddy Bluff or the cottage at Indian House Bluff.  In winter, the lack of foliage almost allows a view of the centerpiece of Clifty Hollow, the natural bridge.  A few years ago the Missouri Conservation Department installed an easy walking trail from the gravel road to the natural bridge  — a lovely 2-mile round trip.   Now, that hike is quite popular with our guests.
